which car to buy from 17,390 to 60,000 €

Sales of new cars have fallen. The forecasts for the year 2022 are not good for manufacturers who come to refuse to accept orders for certain models as the tension on semiconductors and supplies is strong.

In March, 181,134 vehicles were registered, a decrease of more than 21% compared to the same period last year. But the market for 100% electric cars is doing well. In March, the share of electric cars accounted for 13.5% of total registrations.

Electric, heavy trend

All manufacturers are dependent on electric motorization, including in the supply area. The alliance announces 35 new electric models between Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi; The Volkswagen Group and Stellantis are going after the forced electric market, as well as Volvo, Toyota (17 projects under development) and even BMW.

As for Korea, the Hyundai group has just rolled out Kia’s EV6. Finally, China is increasingly present, also in France with the MG offensive.

Based on the common platform for thermals, the e-208 does not lose in habitability.  If the engine produces 136 hp in Sport mode, it is better to play in Normal mode (109 hp) or Eco mode to save autonomy.  Insufficient autonomy to make good use of it.  Photo PSA / Stellantis
